Nothing more than a gimmick and a potentially hazardous one at that. Making more use of the pipe shouldn't be confused with more efficient use.
True, but I'm just pointing out that the pipe can
be used differently.
Not what I would have expected. I know Netscape Communicator was a lot faster under Linux than its Win32 counterpart. The GUI was rather flaky though.
It is. I'm using MozillaFirebird, so I'm not using the flaky GUI
The page I was testing was a rather exceptional case - one huge, long HTML document. It makes the differences between the browsers obvious
I found some tips about MozillaFirebird here, BTW:http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=30552&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
The Taskbar has never been an irritant to me as it apparently is to some.
I am an unmerciful multitasker - rarely do I have enough taskbar space for a lot of browser windows
. I also have a start button, a clock, and a bunch of icons in my taskbar. I can fit a lot more tabs in Mozilla's tabbar than Windows can in its taskbar
